Every year the City of Longmont government provides grants to local organizations that offer critical human services to help people living here in Longmont have a better life.  In 2016, the City contracted with a research company, Corona Insights, to conduct a comprehensive assessment that will help the City understand the current and future needs for services; the level of unmet need; and, following community input sessions, will help establish priorities for how the City allocates annual funding to human service agencies over the next few years.

Corona Insights has recently completed its final report, which integrates data from a variety of sources including an environmental scan (review of existing studies, interviews with some human service agencies, and analysis of demographic and other secondary data), a mail survey of residents with a supplementary intercept survey of homeless residents, results from a recent community-wide satisfaction survey, and interviews with designated human service providers.

In March, the City hosted four community meetings to learn more about the needs and trends data that is included in the report, and to discuss how the city might best address these needs. The Longmont Housing and Human Services Advisory Board (HHSAB) is currently preparing their recommendations regarding service priorities and funding approaches for 2018-2020.

The HHSAB will present these recommendations to the Longmont City Council in late June or early July 2017.  The 2018 Human Service Agency Funding process will open in August 2017.
